at home, the biggest voices in the gun debate square off as congress gets ready to consider changes that have both sides up in arms. >> good morning from mason middle school in mason, ohio. today is monday, march 25th, 2013. and this is "the daily rundown." >> our thanks to the eighth graders at mason middle school in ohio. even that kid lying down. that would have been me in eighth grade. good morning to all of you. i'm chris alizza in for chuck todd this morning. secretary of state john kerry is in afghanistan on a previously unannounced appearance in the war zone. the second stop on a solo trip that took him to iraq over the weekend. but this was no photo op. kerry took the opportunity to have what he called a spirited discussion with iraqi leaders about their failure to stop or even inspect daily flights from iran, carrying weapons to the syrian army through iraqi air space. >> anything that supports president assad is problematic. and i made it very clear to the prime minister that the overflights from iran are, in fact, helping to sustain president assad. there are members of
a code clean up and nick cal changes made to the planning code. over time as we noted some clarifications and corrections that needed to be made. before i invite anne marie rogers from the planning department to kind of walk you through some of those changes, there is a nonsubstantive amendment that needs to be made on page 93, line 24. basically refers to section 315 of the code which has been deleted recently and is now section 415. so, with that i want to invite anne marie rogers here. >> thank you, supervisor. and welcome to the board. anne marie rogers from the planning department and i'm here to go over a little bit of this pretty large ordinance that is before you. as you know, the people of the city of san francisco and the board of supervisors care deeply about the planning code and as a result of that it is amended about 50 times per year. that results invariably in some mistakes and some unintended consequences. as supervisor tang described, there is one ordinance found since the introduction last week, and i do have a couple other changes that i'd like to describe as well as j
rapid technological change and investments. and, you know, i have to say i think part of it is the public's deep-seeded unease with robots. i mean, this goes back to the hal -- [inaudible] and a few other things we remember from our childhood. and, of course, political theater it was, but senator rand paul's filibuster really, i think, did to some degree muddy public understanding of the domestic uses of uas. so we don't do ourselves any favors either from an industry standpoint when we keep changing the names. i could go around this room, and i bet everyone here could come up with a different one. uas, uav, rpv. and now, get this, the latest one? uninhabited aerial vehicles? oh, come on. sexism? give me a break. [laughter] i think our speakers will shed light, though, on some of the more important of uas concern. i'm so delighted that from california frank pace was willing and able to come in, the president and ceo of general b atomics. and, of course, the developer of the predator, among other very leading aircraft in this area. what i really think about it, and i th
changes so this doesn't happen again in the future. >> the parents of three other young newtown victims were at the white house today. the president was himself flanked by mothers all of whom had lost children to gun violence. >> tears aren't enough expressions of sympathy aren't enough. speeches aren't enough. we've cried enough, we've known enough heartbreak. what we're proposing is not radical, it's not taking away anybody's gun rights, it's something that if we are serious, we will do. now is the time to that you were heartbreak into something real. >> the president called for congress to pass background checks which has the support of 91% of americans. that will be introduced at part of the senate's gun safety package. senate republicans went on the offensive, saying offensive things. they accused the president of politicizing it. mike lee said: >> lee, who sits on the senate judiciary committee, warned that he would filibuster any legislation against any legislation to expand background checks or ban high-capacity magazines and assault weapons. you know, the kind of legislation th
changing? is the flow of funds more into equities so far this year or not? >> it is, tyler. we're seeing more flows into equities this year which is a good trend. obviously, we've seen a cycle over the last four years, and that's really rocking the boat. and what we need to do is get people back to the middle. think about a diversifiy eied portfolio, we'll see people continue to buy as the population ages. we need to keep inflation in mind. equities are the only place that is really going to outpace inflation over long periods of time. and people investing in whether it's for accumulation or even income distribution, you need to be thinking about inflation when they think about their allocation to equities. >> brian, i want to ask you about we're all waiting for the s&p to hit its closing highs, just a few points away, for investors. and i guess for a market strategist, which is more important for you to see the strength of this rally? is it these new highs on 30 dow components or is it the s&p 500? >> it's really the s&p 500. for instance, we do not forecast 30 stocks. we forecast a tar
goes away that is our goal. it will send a message to the rest of the country. >> not change minds of critic who's campaigned on behalf of drop 8. >> not about same-sex marriage. it's about question of whether marriage should be eliminate. >> we're trying to have access to marriage and that is what it's all about. this is equal access to an institution that the american society holds dear. >> this berkeley couple says they feel a sense of honor for their roll in this historic case. it's unclear if justices will rule narrowly or make a decision. >> we're confident the court will define marriage between a man and woman. >> justices expected to rule by the end of june. in san francisco abc 7 news. >> the supreme court ruling as the culmination had years of litigation. 52% of california voter as proved the ban on gay marriage. about two years later in august 4th the judge struck down prop 8 and ruled gays and lesbians have a constitutional right to marry. okay. so a year and a half later on february 7th, a appeals court upheld a ban. that cleared a way to what happened. on december 7,
that president obama will be very pragmatic and that scares me. he says president obama is willing to change the formula for how benefits under social security, medicare and other programs are calculated, change cpi in exchange for higher taxes? keep in mind the senator, this senator made a big slash filibustering 13 hours over an issue answered with one sentence f. the big three are threatened by a grand bargain. get your phones out. tonight's question. do you want bernie sanders, the senator, independent from vermont, to filibuster to protect the big three? text a for yes. b for you to 67622. you can go to our blog and we'll bring you the results later in the show. i'm already starting to get the feeling i've got a very unpopular position here that we should protect the big three at all costs because that's what this election was all about. it's about making the wealthiest americans pay more, but to get them to pay more, we have to cut into the middle class and elderly who didn't cause these financial problems. i don't buy it. joining me now is senator bernie sanders of vermont. good to ha
of that is going to change when gay couples are allowed to do the same. the fact is that throughout the nation's history, gay couples and gay individuals have been paying their taxes, and by paying our taxes, we help support all the legal benefits and protections of marriage. according to the government accountability office, there are over 01100 legal benefits and protections that are given to married couples. we have been subsidizing those throughout the nation's history. yet we are unable to take advantage of those same incentives to marry. that cannot be constitutional. host: let me ask you this. should the court be jumping in at this point? one of the arguments being made by the lawyers for proposition 8, today's oral argument, is that there is a social movement happening. polls are showing more people in favor. let that take place. let states decide what they want to do. is there a role for the supreme court? caller: of course there is. this cannot be accomplished in a piecemeal, state-by-state basis. most of the legal benefits of marriage come from the federal government. but me give yo

to do more and do it faster to change the way medicare and medicaid pay for healthcare. how to boost the country's economy, we learned from economists the number one way to reduce healthcare spending is to end fee-for-service. everyone agree that fee-for-service drives volumes, excesses, and waste. we know this encourages the wrong things. that's why healthcare reform changed incentives to providers. and medicare and medicaid are testing different programs to determine which work best. in october, medicare rolled out a program with a simple yet revolutionary premise. medicare is going to pay hospitals to get the job done right the first time. the hospitals are penalized if patients are readmitted too soon after being discharged. communities from montana to maryland are rising to the challenge. in miss sue los angeles montana, the local earth is partnering with medicare on care transitions. under the program, patients at reaction of readmission will get extra help making the transmission from the hospital back to the community. today we'll hear about data showing significant first ste

have got to change the trajectory of this country. we capital sustain ourselves if we go to $20 trillion, $20 trillion debt. whether you're a democrat, republican, libertarian, whatever you are, independent, you should want a strong monetary policy and a strong economic policy. and we have got a few more years left, and this is a good start right here in the senate if we can get this bill up and pass it and the house will do something. we will fund the government until september 30, which we are supposed to do. that way we can start on the 14 budget -- the 2014 budget and maybe go to regular order is what we would like in the appropriation process and not go from crisis to crisis. what we have done in the house and the senate and the white house is involved in this, too, in recent years, we have gone from -- lurched from crisis to crisis, and then we come up to the deadline and people say oh, we have got to have certainty, so we kick the can down the road just a few more yards, but that's not the way to do business. this country is too important. the business community needs cer
relationship is first established and annually in paper form, even if no policy changes have occurred. my bill would require institutions to provides these notices only if they have changed the policy or practice related to the privacy of the consumer. this may seem like a simple little change, but its impact on financial institutions is significant. requiring these institutions to send annual notices even when no changes have made are redundant, unnecessary and costly. mr. speaker, this bill will permit financial institutions to redirect these resources towards lending, staffing and lowering the cost of financial services. for consumers, these mailings typically serve to clog up mailboxes and confuse even the best of us. in fact, a recent voter survey indicated that fewer than one quarter of the consumers read the privacy notifications they receive and over 3/4 would be more likely to read them if they were only sent when the institution changed its policies. this bill will make the mailings more significant stop consumers because they would only come after a change in policy. let me reiterat
of their dollars when poor people are paying a disproportionate amount. so david throw said things don't change, we do. there's going to have to be some changes going on with individuals and their philosophies if we're going to bring this nation around to propelling this growth or we're going to fall down again because they are not going to move. >> when you look at the fact that speaker boehner wrote and this is an op-ed that says, obama's outreach is nice but where's the leadership? if we're going to find bipartisan solutions, the president will have to move beyond the same proposals as democrat democratic dogma. aren't they saying, there can be an agreement as long as everybody agrees with me? >> yes, he is. but he's trying to do other things with these kinds of press conferences and op-eds. by the way, you spent plenty of time with the president. i have, too. saying he's not a leadership is going to get under your skin. that's a cheap shot. he doesn't care. he knows who he is and he's the president of the united states. john boehner knows very well indeed and all of the republican leaders know
. >>> this tuesday, marking ten years since the start of the iraq war. has our opinion of the conflict changed since then? we've got a new poll for you that shows time may not heal all wounds. >>> and the carnival legend is back in tampa after technical difficulties. it is the latest in a series of problems for the beleaguered carnival cruise line. es around the world that sell stolen identities? >> 30-year-old american man, excellent credit rating. >> announcer: lifelock monitors thousands of these sites 24 hours a day. and if we discover any of our members' data for sale, lifelock is there with the most comprehensive identity theft protection available.

that is going to change some. there are going to be some people who see us, see me in particular as having taken sides. so i often get asked why did you do this? and i think the fact is for both of us we spent 40 years building some capital and a reputation and they're comes a point you feel like you need to use that capital because the stakes are too high, the consequences are great, and we both believe that we are had a really critical point in this political system. we face huge problems in the country. short term and long term. and if we are going to leach the system of problem solvers and in up with people who say things like richard murdock, the new republican nominee for the senate in indiana said yesterday which is my idea of compromise is on the move to accept my position. if that is how we are going to be faced with making policy decisions that are going to be very tough and painful for americans as all major changes in social policy whether the expanded government or contract government do they disrupt people's lives almost by definition and you can't make that work and create a sense
. they're supportive of these big changes and clear goals and will be partnering with them to form donor councils that will help raise the money needed for implementation of these goals. i want to insure that we're spending the money wisely, so we'll foster competition among vendors and providers to get the best and brightest talent on our side. this is just the beginning of an unprecedented effort. the learning process doesn't stop today. this is day one. we're going to continue the listening sessions, and we're going to keep making adjustments. in the last two years, we've overcome some pretty tough challenges at the rnc; rebuilding a broken committee, raising the money needed to serve our nominee was just the beginning. we'll bring that same spirit to meeting the challenges of the coming years. today we mark a fresh beginning. it's about winning elections. but more importantly, it's because we believe america deserves better than what we have today. better than a big, bloated federal government and the same old one-size-fits-all bureaucracy. better education, better health care, bette

, we assess what the change means for china, and the united states and the biggest issues between them: trade, defense and cyber security. >> brown: then, as pope francis embarks on his first full day as pontiff, we examine his roots in argentina. >> woodruff: margaret warner talks to michigan governor rick snyder after he recommended an emergency manager to take over the finances of the troubled city of detroit. >> we've got at least 50 years of this problem growing and a lot of people on good faith in the past have tried to solve it and have been unsuccessful. so the way i view it as is this is all hands on deck. >> brown: spencer michels has the story of the high tech splash of lights transforming san francisco's bay bridge into a work of art. >> it was overwhelming. it was really very, very exciting. it's meant to be open ended, highly subjective so you can just relax, view the piecend take fom iwhat you will. >> woodruff: and r suarez looks at life in japan, two years after the devastation caused by the tsunami and nuclear disaster. >> brown: that's all ahead on tonight's "newshou

it and how can we change it. d i have told them and scythed example after -- cited example after example. t's only in recent years we've seen the debilitation of the legislative process. i think it's important to engage the public as we are doing and getting ideas on how we can reform congressionally and politically as well as reform. that's important. and that's why getting a spectrum from the public across the country is going to be crucial in this regard. and then the other part of it is using and harnessing the social media to make your elected officials accountable. there is no reason they ought to be taking recesses when they are facing a sequester frankly. the debt ceiling back in 2011. half our time in the senate between january and june, half of our time was not spent on legislative business. in fact in 2011 alone, it was one of the fewest number of days we've been in session since 1992 and here it was coinciding with one of the event that created the highest level of policy uncertainty of any event over the last 20 years, surpassing the wars, surpassing the financial crieses, sept
. a transformational change. >> i think colorado is a good example. i grew up in that state, it definitely is a hunting-friendly state. i only lived in sweet states, strategic. >> there's some ohio blood in there? >> i'm going to move there for a while so i can say, i used to live in ohio, it's a swing state. you're seeing it in colorado where this is going. states are responsive on a local level. politics is all about pressure and leverage. for somebody like a mary landrieu, she doesn't see as a national poll as necessarily the pressure that's going to change her election. she's worried about louisiana. she's worried about getting re-elected in that state. and until you see the zeitgeist change within the state, these politicians are not responsive to that. where bloomberg can make a huge difference is he can go into a local race, a congressional district, he can go in on a state. when mary landrieu starts seeing bloomberg money against her, then i think she might change her mind. >> let's talk about bloomberg money. as if he's got bloomberg money.

be life changing. >> neil: we look back at the -- i'm thinking of charles keeting and these infamous names. not so great for you because of you parents. we were told your money is safe there, s birdie l customers were brunched. rules were changed. a lot of the accounts were protected but apparently not enough. so when you hear, bill, a lot of people say, well, cyprus is cyprus and it's not us, and and you grew up as a young guy witnessing for yourself what can happen, any lesson that you want to pass on? >> yeah. all great points, neil. whence is listen to this, i didn't fully understand it. i do now. i think about in 2008 when all the -- the banks went from -- to $2,550,000 for insurance. when you have trust for an institution to take care of something that is lightfully yours, and when they change the rules on you, there's inherent unfairness about that. and you mentioned charles keating. i think the banks he bought into operated in arizona, and ironically he was from cincinnati, ohio. this is michigan that started in the mid-80s but did not wrap up until about 1992 or 1993, as i recall.
no interest in dropping their favorite past-time, but democrats could put a stop to it by changing the rules. the idea is it isn't even the rules, it's them. >> i thought it made sense right after he was elected the first time to try to reach across the aisle. that was the theme of his entire campaign. pretty soon it became clear that there was never going to be any, any give on, in terms of give and take on the part of the republicans. after a while, he needed, he and the democrats not just obama, needed to go after this party and make it clear that they are obstructionists, that they are harming working people. they're harming the middle class, they're harming the poor and that's never occurred. >> another example of this, carrie. jonathan bernstein in the "washington post" had a piece that sums up my feelings probably about this. but this is what he wrote -- he said the truth is that the house of representatives, which is the chief sort of opponents of the obama agenda, right now appear to be both in capable of legislating and not interested in it either. the only thing to do is put the d
friend. but, it changes the definition of what it means to be a friend. and that is, it seems to me what the supporters of proposition 8 are saying here, all you are interested in is the label and insist on changing the definition of the label. >> reporter: justice anthony kennedy who many believe could serve as the swing vote in the case signaled he is empathetic to how the courts ruling will impact the children of same sex couples. >> there are 40,000 children, according to the brief, that live with same sex parents and they want their parents to have full recognition and full status. the voice of those children is important in this case, don't you think? >> reporter: despite the comment he cautioned the court is wading into uncharted waters and said at one point is not sure the case is properly before the court. there are technical issues regarding the standing of the case, and, several argued they never met to the merits of the case. lou. >> shannon bream, fox news supreme court correspondent. our first guest here tonight to further ajude indicate the proposition 8 -- ajudjudicate t
murder and obviously with the murders of mike and cynthia mclelland this changes things dramatically here. it has many people on edge. >> ed lavendera, thanks so much. keep us posted as you dig deeper on this story. thanks so much. >>> we're asking more questions as well trying to find out the connections between these two cases that just took place yesterday and that of two months ago. the mayor of a town in kaufman county and former fbi assistant director tom fuentes will join us live. >>> and christians all over the world are celebrating easter today. in rome, pope francis delivered his first easter blessings since becoming pontiff. thousands of worshippers from around the world packed st. peter's square. senior international correspondent jim bittermann is in rome. >> reporter: barely two weeks into his reign, pope francis, as he celebrated his first easter mass, is putting distance between himself and his predecessor. for one thing, the new pope probably wouldn't have liked the term "reign." he he already has done several things to show he's against the imperial nature of the papacy.
think the biggest concern would be the regulations surroundg marijuana, the laws, the changing laws, there's so much uncertainty. do you see that as an obstacle to investing in the industry? >> yeah, it's something everybody has to pay attention to. there's an absolute dichotomy between federal and state laws at this point. we see like days of prohibition where states develop their own rules and regulations like in colorado and washington with 62 and 502 # passed. these are the dominoes that tip over and the feds back off. they have a schedule 1 narcotic meaning zero medicinal value associated with it when the primary use of the states in colorado and california were, in fact, me diddal, pushing now into recreational use in the benefits associated with that. sandra: interesting take and play. thank you for joining us tonight. >> thanks, sandra, take care. sandra: nextn "money," president obama will slash his own economic goals this week, but it could be good news for recovery. details next. plus, states finally saved enough tax revenue for a rainy day. why are they preparing for a h
